Asia, Tibet, Shisha Pangma, Central Summit

Shisha Pangma, Central Summit. Our expedition was composed of Eturou Hino, Toyofumi Miyazaki, Masanori Hasimoto and me as leader. Before entering Tibet, we acclimatized in Nepal. This prevented difficulties with high altitude. We set up Base Camp at 4900 meters on April 14. We placed Advance Base and Camps I, II and III at 5600, 6400, 6900 and 7100 meters. On May 6, Hino and Miyazaki reached the slightly lower central summit.
